Rosneft Expands Cooperation with Far Eastern Federal University

14 September 2023

Rosneft Oil Company and the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) signed an agreement on cooperation in education and science at the 8th Eastern Economic Forum.

The document was signed by Igor Sechin, Chief Executive Officer of Rosneft, and Boris Korobets, Rector of FEFU.

The agreement provides for the expansion of cooperation between the Company and the University in the areas of personnel training and retraining, research and innovation activities, and the development of the University’s scientific and educational infrastructure. ­­For more than a decade, the university has been implementing projects at the intersection of science and business, training highly qualified specialists in areas relevant to Rosneft. The most in-demand specialities include oil and gas, chemical technologies, power engineering and electrical engineering, automation of technological processes, mechanical engineering and shipbuilding.

Rosneft is creating a Corporate Competence Centre as part of the integrated scientific and educational infrastructure at FEFU.

The Centre’s infrastructure will include 18 classrooms, 3 co-working areas, 12 laboratories and 2 basic departments. The Centre will set up training laboratories in promising areas such as ship modelling, robotics, computer programming and design, and R/AR technologies* to organise project work. The first phase of the Centre – the Engineering Development thematic module – has already been launched.  

The module includes laboratories for ship hull construction, ship diagnostics and technical condition, computer modelling, as well as 2 multimedia classrooms for students and Rosneft engineering classes.

On the basis of the Centre, it is planned to implement training and retraining programmes for employees of Primorsky shipbuilding and ship repair enterprises, as well as to develop the system of supplementary education.

Today, the university trains engineers in a wide range of fields, including shipbuilding and marine engineering, oil and gas engineering, chemical technologies, power and electrical engineering, automation of technological processes, mechanical engineering.

The university provides Russia’s most advanced shipyard, the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex, and the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Repair Centre with highly qualified personnel: over 600 FEFU graduates have been employed there in the last five years.

*R/AR technologies are augmented reality technologies based on overlaying objects and elements from the virtual world onto real objects using a smartphone or tablet camera.

Note for Editors:

Personnel training and development is one of the priority tasks of the Rosneft 2030 strategy. The Company provides its employees with opportunities to continuously improve their professional and personal skills and competencies.

In order to concentrate in one building of FEFU the university infrastructure facilities created and equipped with Rosneft support (basic departments, laboratories, communication and image spaces), an agreement was signed at the Eastern Economic Forum in September 2022 to establish the Company’s centre of excellence at FEFU.
